A week of intensity, so you can hear me taking my foot off the accelerator a bit for this one. I'd first thought to shake things up, but this one coalesced around a familiar center of gravity.

Bb F Bb F Bb C again, though while this began as three tracks, on Sunday I could hear an additional line in places, so added a fourth after the first few sections. Another section in the middle still seemed a bit too sparse, so I added a reversed version of the chords being played in the fourth track. (I did that for the restatement of that section and for one other. I also had to decide to prevent myself from overusing this effect--anything worth listening to is worth listening to backwards.)

There's the usual convolution reverb and compression/eq on the main stereo bus, but otherwise no inline effects.

The title comes from the heat-resistant tiles used on the Space Shuttle. (Borosilicate glass doesn't become workable until it's heated to 538°C.)

calming and lush, in spite of the minimal arrangement. that backwards touch was perfect, and feels like the right call to limit it and leave us (me at least) wanting more.  smile
here's hoping for a less crispy week, my friend

the mirror is a really nice touch!
hope that your pace get's more comfortable soon!

Very pretty, with enough variety to keep the listener engaged throughout, but also with this background ambient guitar quality to it that allows it to ring out without being distracting when you want it in the background. I've been listening to it a few times this week, good track!

Soothing and comfy, love the main melody
